GG and Cundill Prize shortlist 2018

More memoir than history on the shortlist for the 2018 Governor-General's Award in nonfiction, an intriguing list released this morning, including a couple of books and authors I have heard some buzz about and some unknown to me.

The Cundillians

Getting more historical, the Cundill Prize, the Montreal based $75,000 prize for the world's best history book, recently released its longlist of nominated titles.  A shortlist of three will appear at the end of October, and a winner in November.

Meanwhile, here are the first-round Cundill contenders, and gee, this year, I have actually read one in advance and on my own initiative.
